Must be reviewed under context.

I think Astrid is a great movie. You must take the movie in context. It is a Swedish movie which has a rating for 6-year-olds. Brief nudity is common in non USA movies. The nudity that is shown is for the purpose of storytelling. Astrid is a lovely girl who makes a mistake but, takes responsibility for her actions. I believe it is okay for 15-year-olds and up because our freshman/sophomore German class watched it and seem to have no issues.

Poorly written and gratuitous child nudity

Young teen female nudity - unnecessary and gratuitous. The old man who has sex with the child is not shown nude. Only the child.

Too much sex
